, are you confident that the obama administration and congress can agree on defense cuts that do not impair significantly the ability of the united states to remain the world's dominant superpower? >> no. i, you know, i think that there is an outline of at least a small budget deal to be had when you talk to reasonable members of both parties in congress and there are still some who belong in those, that category, you can come up with some, some mechanisms for increasing revenue and some mechanisms for restraining the, reducing entitlement costs that could at least get us to a small budget deal for the next two to three years, with some relief for, you know, to avoid another round of sequestration and so forth. whether we can see our way through the political paralysis to get there is another question all together. i think that, so i am by nature an optimist. i want to believe rationality will prevail but so far it hasn't. time after time in, from the sequestration, the imposition of the sequestration to the recent shut down and so forth. so i'm not confident at this point but i thin

his preparation for the presidency? obviously, obama came into office in the first term with the world collapsing around him. and even republicans will say, look, that was a tough, tough take for him. and president bush 43 actually said to hank awlson, i'd like to help you, but i would do more harm than good at the end. so that's where we were in the chaos. but now the second term comes, and what's, i think, frustrating a lot of people who were obama supporters and were excited about him is there doesn't seem to be a clear idea about where he wants to go and how he wants to get there. we know from double down, the new book, that he walks into a staff meeting before the campaign finishes and says i want to go back to my agenda, climate change and immigration and the other things. and they're in a slight state of horror because they know those are not going to be the issues. so what do you think arthur would think about how we've prepared people for going to 1600 pennsylvania avenue and whether obama is somebody that we ought to look at as a model, if you will, about having very hi
